The history of Hutto dates back to the 19th century, with the city being established in 1876. At this time, the International-Great Northern Railroad passed through land in the area that was owned by James Emory Hutto. It is this connection to Hutto that led to the name of the city. In 1876, Hutto sold 50 acres to the Texas Land Company of New York for a town site. Years later, local legend states that a circus train stopped in the town in 1915. At this time, a hippopotamus got out of a railcar and wandered to nearby Cottonwood Creek. The Depot Agent telegraphed nearby communities with the message of, “Stop trains, hippo loose in Hutto.” The animal was ultimately freed from the waters of the muddy creek and returned to the train car, after which time the high school adopted the hippo as its mascot.
Today, Hutto, Texas is among the fastest growing communities in Texas, with its population increasing by well over 1000 percent in the past decade.

The community is currently undergoing a five-year plan to improve its parks, wastewater treatment and parks. To further assist with the city’s growth, it has also developed the first accredited Economic Development Corporation in the Austin area. The corporation is in charge of expanding brands and local industry in the area. Despite the city’s rapid growth, many of Hutto’s historic buildings remain standing within the city.
